My name is Mario, I have worked with wood since I was a child and my whole life revolves around art and design. I have combined my love for mobile phones and art of woodwork and therefore the product of that sinergy are high-quality modern docks and stands for mobile phones. Nature creates many wonderful forms and sculptures. It is up to me to provide those creations with functional design. Every dock or stand is handmade and processed to highlight the natural design and beauty of solid wood.
Proccess of making
In the process of making I spend a lot of time studying the variety of shapes: the position of a branch, textures and forms incurred under the influence of environment, punctures, holes, ingrown forms. When you see the final product, you can see that it is a result of a long process. In nature, some shapes need many years and decades for forming and growing. All stands and docks are made of old stumps, broken or parted logs- none are from living trees. Every piece of wood needs to dry for several years, in nature and in controlled conditions, before it is ready for processing. My process of working on one dock lasts around 5 days. During that time I can do only few of them simultaneously. For making docks and stands I use wood like quality species of oak, beech, hornbeam, pine, cherry and apple tree. When merging pieces I use Carpenter’s wood glue, which is the best kind, proven by carpenters from all over the world. For finishing I use linseed oil, beeswax and lacquer.

Golden Valley in Croatia
I use hardwoods from great sustainable woodlands that surround Vallis Aurea in Croatia. The great old Romans called this area Vallis Aurea, and translated from Latin it means Golden Valley. The quality of wood from these forests can be proven in many ways but I would like to point out Venice, where this wood is used for Venetian pylons.
